The NGO Tax Regime & the Enabling Environment for Philanthropy in Ghana

December 13, 2018

Ghana has a vibrant culture of personal giving and charitable contributions, which offers hope for increased domestic resourcing and more effective and sustainable civil society organizations (CSOs) in this time of declining global support. However, the policy and legal frameworks for organized forms of giving/philanthropy in Ghana are lacking. It is difficult to find consistent and regularly-produced information on the nature and extend of organized giving and corporate social responsibility (CSR) engagement to facilitate collaboration and ascertain impact.In May 2018, the International Center for Non-For-Profit Law supported a research to identify and document current regulatory provisions that influence philanthropy; and to identify and develop specific positive policy reform recommendations.The rationale for this study was to help improve understanding amongst non-profits, government and other stakeholders on philanthropy in Ghana. It is also aimed at suggesting legal and administrative framework required to strengthen the philanthropy space.

Our analysis provides these key findings for individual giving in South Africa: Around eight in ten people surveyed (81%) have given money in the past 12 months, eitherto a charity, to a church or religious organisation, or by sponsoring someone. Donors said they are most likely to give money because they believe they can make adifference, and because they want to help those less fortunate than themselves. Amongst those who donated in the past 4 weeks, the typical (median) donation wasR500. The most common method of donating was via a donation box in a supermarket/shop,which 40% of donors had used. Six in ten people surveyed have volunteered in the past 12 months (61%), 49% havedone so for a church or religious organisation, 45% for an NPO/charity and 45% for acommunity organisation. The most popular cause amongst donors (58%) and volunteers (43%) was helping the poor. Having more money themselves is the thing most likely to encourage those surveyed todonate more time, goods or money in the coming 12 months (53%).
